My Royal Hospital

Councillors in Royal Hospital have been supporting projects that bring residents together. From street parties and memorials for the Great War to a drop in centre for the homeless, £13,631.74 was allocated for projects last year.

Councillors have recently proposed a survey of the ward that will help discover the priorities of residents and set the agenda for Royal Hospital’s City Living, Local Life for the years to come.

Royal HospitalWest London Churches Homeless Concern, a local charity offering help to the homeless, received £5000 for a one off capital expenditure: adding a washing machine to its existing services of food, shelter, and dignity-restoring support. Councillor Emma Will expressed her delight in providing this vital support:

I am delighted we have the ward money to invest in an important local charity and to use this funding to help support those that - for whatever reason - find themselves homeless in the borough”.

As this year we all reflect and commemorate the sacrifice of generations Royal Hospital Great Warpassed, £2000 was allocated for the Chelsea Society’s “Chelsea in the Great War” exhibition, remembering the contribution of both those who lined up to enlist at Duke of York Square HQ and those who stayed at home.
